Mob Psycho 100 anime’s protagonist Mob is the type of hero you’ll find only in mangaka ONE’s works. Like its senpai One Punch Man, this one gives us an overpowered main character with the most nonchalant personality.
Unlike Saitama, Shigeo Kageyama, or Mob, has always been a person who is afraid and unaware of the extent of his powers. Although, people seem to take him lightly, except those who know him well, much like the One Punch hero.
However, Mob has had tremendous character development over the last two seasons. The latest trailer for Mob Psycho 100 anime’s third season has perfectly summarized this growth.
The video is a compilation of the most significant and impactful events in Mob’s life. Like when he started busting spirits for Reigen and joined his school’s Body Improvement Club despite having zero athletic abilities.
Taking us for a ride on the nostalgia train, the trailer further shows Mob’s childhood incidents when he lost control of his powers. This happened to him during his teenage years, too, but it was more controlled and contained.
Shigeo might not use his powers for himself but goes berserk when someone close to him gets hurt. The perfect example of this is when Toichiro blasted Reigen, which enraged Mob enough to unlock 100% of his potential.
The upcoming arc is crucial as one of Mob’s friends, Dimple will be his enemy. Despite his strong morals, Shigeo is soft-hearted and would never use his powers against those he considers as friends.
I’m looking forward to Mob’s choice: save the world by killing your friend, or save your friend and let the world be destroyed? We’ll find out on October 6, 2022.
